I'm installing an Eibach pro kit and it came with 2 wierd looking bump stops. I looked around under the rear end and could not find the factory bump stops. Soooo, my question is could someone direct me towards this darn thing?

I was using the GC install write-up on the FAQ as a guide and it never mentioned installing a new stop. Anyone know why? Every car I've installed springs on required changing the height of the bump stop.
Thanks! :bouncy:

You going to lower it with the 20's? I guess mine was lowered so it will fit but it will be tight.

The bump stop is at the top of the shock under the splash shield/cap. When you pull the assembly off you'll see it. Never changed mine. Make sure you get alignment afterwards. I drove mine for 1500 miles to let them settle in. Couple hundred should be enough.

Well that makes sense as to why I couldn't find it on the rear end. Looks like I'll be tossing the ones Eibach provided. :)

You lost me...why not put the Eibach ones on?

If I recall correctly, the Eibach versions are actually larger in size than the stock to supplement the lowered spring.
